In our past as hunter-gatherers, we were predators. But in an agricultural age, our relationship to the animals we kill for their meat has undergone a slow but radical transformation. In his unflinching study of how this shift plays out in the modern psyche, Rob Percival explores how our capacity to empathise with suffering animals clashes with our willingness to consume their flesh. In doing so he challenges us to confront the uncomfortable truths that lie on our dinner plates and to grapple with the moral implications of our appetites – making this an essential read for anyone struggling with their conscience.
